Farmers seek higher relief for crops damaged by wild animals
By The Hindu 17-Jul-2019
At the meeting, chaired by Deputy Commissioner Abhiram G. Sankar, at the ZP auditorium here, State Sugarcane Growers’ Association President Kurubur Shanthkumar said the compensation awarded by the Forest Department for crop damages was meagre and unscientific too and it should be hiked considering the loss incurred by the farmers.
A large number of farmers attended the meeting. ZP CEO Jyothi, Mysuru SP Ryshanth and other senior officers from the district were present.
The relief has not been hiked since past 20 years. The department gives relief for just five tonnes of sugarcane if the farmer had lost more than 20 tonnes grown on a one-acre plot. Also, the compensation should be released to the farmers within 48 hours of the damage caused by the animals.
